"CottotFis Children or Collpn a curse to Texas ohildreu," remarked the super intendent of one of the Texas schools to Lewis W. ELine, spec ial investigator for the National Ohild Labor Committee. And why it is a curse? This question is the theme 6f an article by Mr. Hine on "Children of Oottou," in the "Survey" of-February 7th. 'Come out with me at sun up," says Mr. Hine, "and watch the children troopiuj? into the field, some of them kiddies four or five years old, to begin the pick-pick-pick, drop into the bag, step forward; pick-pick, drop in to the bag, step forward, six days in the week, live months in the year, under a relentless sun. The mere sight of their monot onous repetition will tire you out long before they stop. Their working day folIowB';the 8unfand .not until sun -down will they leave the fields.

What can it be but ohvsical defeneration and moral atrophy? We have long assailed (and justly) the , cotton industry as the Herod of the mills. The Eunshine. iii the cot ton fields, has blinded onr eyes to, the fact that the cotton pick er suffers quite as much as the mill haod from, the monotony, overwork, and hopelessness of hia life. It. ,h high fiiuie for us to face the truth and adoYto our In dictment of bum Cotton a new charge the Eforo'l of the lields. "Oiva of the most pitiful things about the fUtuation is the indiff erent acceptance of conditionw by people generally. I heard very little anxious comment except from school teachers. Ruby's father, who said, "They git five months schooling . and it ain't 'uufT.' stood out among all "the parents! interviewed as'n rare exception. It is quite possible that the Texas farmers are not so indifferent to the exploitation of their children as appears, for they are litterallv 'up against it.' They are transient renters, weighed down by debt, illiterate and dependent upon the crops. "But I place first and foremost in any program of change the re- strietisn of child labor. Child ren must be left free to go to school. At a recent conference of tha Texas State Board of Charities aud Corrections, all were at;reed that compulsory ed ucatiou is the greatest need of Texas today. Patriotism demands that we save the children- We must begin at ouce lay the foundation for the farmer of to morrow, by a, longer period of childhood today, with better preparaUba foworhr.aDd abetter training. f6r$feY ' CASTOR I A For Infants and Chfldrei ki UFr, Ow 30 Wars Always bears' Sicnatnre of "SYRUP OF FIGS" FOR CONSTIPATED CHILD MRS.
